The cynic in me wonders if this is a move to put OP on record concerning what he says is the marriage's and his property and income preparatory to a divorce proceeding.The same thing was suggested by a close friend just last night. I had previously told her that filing "joint" was a requirement of being "joint." So she's headed that way.What if, if she choose not to claim 12 of my income on her return? If I read Pub 55 and provide the necessary information to her but she takes that attitude "that's your income, I don't have any." That sounds like I'm asking the IRS to come get involved in my personal life. I can't imagine how to make an impending divorce more contentious than asking the IRS to get involved. For the $8000 difference, I might be better off just claiming all the income.
